Blast rips through South Philadelphia refinery, triggering major fire

An explosion in a butane vat ripped through a refinery in South Philadelphia early Friday, lighting up the night sky and triggering a massive fire.

There were no injuries and it appears firefighters have contained the blaze. Officials lifted a shelter in place request for residents in the immediate area and reopened the Platt Bridge, which was closed after the explosion.

The city Office of Emergency Management said the refinery’s operators reported “no detectable inhalants.”
